Prepare the vehicle for fuel pump servicing. Relieve the fuel system pressure and disconnect the negative battery cable with a socket wrench. Wait at least 90 seconds on vehicles equipped with an air bag before doing anything else.
Access the fuel pump by removing the bottom of the rear seat. Open the service hole in the rear floor. Take out the bolts that hold the fuel tank set plate to the fuel tank and remove the fuel pump assembly.
Disconnect the fuel pump sender and electrical connection for the fuel pump. Remove the outlet tube and return the tube from the fuel pump bracket. Separate the bracket from the fuel tank and pull the lower part of the fuel pump away from the bracket. Disconnect the fuel hose and rubber cushion from the fuel pump. Remove the small clip that holds the fuel filter to the pump.
Install the new fuel pump using the items included in the kit, and be sure to replace the rubber cushion and clip. Use a torque wrench to tighten the attaching bolts for the fuel tank set to 30 in. lbs.
It has a inertia switch. For accidents. It is located in the trunk on the passenger side , up by the back seat. It does not have a reset per say. If it is not the switch mentioned then try smacking the tank in the middle. This will jar the pump and if it starts working replace the pump. This will only work so many times.
Pretty sure you don't need to drop the tank on those. I usually take the tank down as "routine" to prevent dirt etc from falling into it while working and to check contents of tank for rust & water that can & will damage new pump. A bit of extra work, but many times well worth the effort! Tank r&r isn't really such a difficult job. Good Luck
